Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.You can file a return for the past 3 years and expect a refund. The time frame is based on the date the returns were due and three years forward from there.So if it were a return for the tax year 2011. you would need to file the return before April 15, 2015 to expect the IRS to process the refund.
This is based on the tax law in IRC 26 6511Claim for credit or refund of an overpayment of any tax imposed by this title in respect of which tax the taxpayer is required to file a return shall be filed by the taxpayer within 3 years from the time the return was filed or 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever of such periods expires the later, or if no return was filed by the taxpayer, within 2 years from the time the tax was paid. Claim for credit or refund of an overpayment of any tax imposed by this title which is required to be paid by means of a stamp shall be filed by the taxpayer within 3 years from the time the tax was paid.

Can a person making only 750.oo a month from social security disability and ssi expect to get a refund I don't pay taxes where does the refund money come from Can I file this myself / short from I'm just claiming myself is there any money to be had.What kinds of entries must I put down to get a refund
I told you my only income was social security disability in the first place but you must have not considered that in your first answer and led me to believe that I could get a refund
When you answered the first time my very first communication told you that a lived on social security disability yet you still acted like your first response was correct because it should have been based upon the first uestion which included this information. How much have I been charged? Karen XXXXX
